A New Way to Visualize Mountains of Biological Data

A New Way to Visualize Mountains of Biological Data

This is a general example of a type of visual that a graph neural network can create with provided biological data.   By Eric Stann | MU News Bureau  Studying genetic material on a cellular level, such as single-cell RNA-sequencing, can provide scientists with a detailed, high-resolution view of biological processes at work. This level [...]

Mizzou Engineers, USGS Create Tool to Test Oil in Water

Mizzou Engineers, USGS Create Tool to Test Oil in Water

Researchers are creating a tool that would allow oil in water to be tested using a portable device, smart phone and sample vial. Those responding to oil spills could soon have an easier way to determine the environmental impacts. A Mizzou Engineer is helping develop a tool to analyze water samples and measure oil levels [...]
Students Create VR Software to Diagnose, Monitor Concussions

Students Create VR Software to Diagnose, Monitor Concussions

Mizzou Engineers are coming up with a way to determine and self monitor concussions from home. A group of Mizzou Engineering seniors are developing an innovative way to determine the severity of concussions. For their computer science capstone project, the students are designing software that would work with virtual reality goggles to allow users to [...]
